Strengths:

Price, Bang for the buck. Multi-threaded.

Weaknesses:

None. Hard to beat at this price. And it costs more than a Raspberry Pi4, but how much is your time really worth today.

Additional Comments:

These entry-level i5 12th-gen Intel chips really put out the performance, now that each core is multi-threaded, especially considering the price point. (This one has 6 cores so that's 12 threads under optimum conditions). This one (the i5-12400) is great value and I was very impressed by just how quickly it ripped through my latest Linux kernel build utilizing all 6 cores (less time than it took to drink a cold beer). It's not overclockable, but hey, it'll keep your power bill down which will make your parents happier. Match this little baby up with some stock DDR5 ram, a decent PCIe SSD drive, a nice entry level graphics card, and a mobo that supports the Z690 chipset, then look out. Runs cool with the stock Intel fan right out the box (40 - 45 degrees C, on average) in a mid-sized case, so you know it's going to last. Nope, the integrated graphics chip (UHD-750) won't win any rabbit races, but for a $20 video chip, that's about all the performance Intel is going to give you - (and of course, get ready for their ARC video cards to start retailing any day now). If you want a faster rig, don't buy an overpriced bigger processor; save your dough and invest in a better graphics card, some fast memory and a slick SSD. This i5-12400 will make a lot of people happy at this price. It's dependable, cool, and priced right). And these Intel processors (compared to AMD) are a lot easier to hook up with almost any Linux build. This is a nice daily-driver that you may just want to take your girlfriend (or boyfriend) out at night with.
